It has been an exciting month for our business coaching and consulting clients this month, with plenty of achievements all round. Among the more public stuff:
– Kagi Jewellery (such a fast growing, successful NZ company!) has made the finals of the University of Auckland Business School Entrepreneurs Challenge (and are in the running for a share of $1 million). Go Kat, Geoff, Helen and team! Good luck – you are doing so well!
– Wendy Thompson of Socialites and Start Social has just finished a big tour of many locations around NZ as part of Yellow’s business series. Wendy (and her business’ software and offerings) are a smart way for businesses of all sizes to do social media, with a business-changing impact.
– Les Mills won recently at the prestigious New Zealand Best Design Awards with their product SMARTBAR™. It picked up the Gold Pin for Best Product Design and the highly-coveted Purple Pin, otherwise known as the Supreme Award. Well done to the greater Les Mills team! Did you know that 3.5 million people a week do a Les Mills class somewhere in the world (well in 80-odd countries)? Holy…
– Milly’s Kitchen (sorry for not mentioning in prior post Liz!) won Metro magazine’s Best Specialist Retailer. Milly’s are so awesome in the market of cooking/kitchen product for those who really love their cooking and baking. There’s no better place to lose an hour “milly-ing” around!
– As you may know, Silver Chef (a large listed company on the ASX, now worth approximately AUD$232 million) made the BRW Top 50 Employers in Australia again (for the third year in a row). Silver Chef is a great company in so many respects! Well done, Charles, Sylvia and co, you are an inspiration and I love working with you on people, culture and customer experience! The Silver Chef team have shared the secrets of their success with us – check out that blog entry for a good read.
– We had two clients in the NZ Herald this month (thank you for the mention, guys – always appreciated!): Lance and Jackson Engineering (Lance and his team are amazing mechanical engineers specialising in the world of air conditioning) and John, Sandy and Keith of Custom Residential (Custom Residential are a real estate firm in Auckland who are doing so well with a different approach to your normal real estate firms – if you’re selling, you know who to go to!). Fantastic coverage for you both and thanks to journalist Gill South for focusing on these two exciting companies. To read the Custom Residential story, click here: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/
I look forward to seeing which Business Changing clients achieve what in the immediate future. I know a few things are bubbling away in the pipeline…
